The producer of a new movie that criticizes Obamacare has reportedly become the latest prominent conservative slapped with an IRS audit.
Logan Clements, producer of “Sick and Sicker: ObamaCare Canadian Style,” announced via press release Tuesday that he is being audited for the first time ever.
“I had never been audited before I made this movie,” he says in a YouTube video. “There seems to be a pattern here.”
The news comes one month after the conservative Breitbart News announced that it, too, was being audited and that the action was probably politically motivated.
Mr. Clements‘ movie makes the case that Obamacare will eventually lead to socialized medicine like Canada.
In the video, he says the IRS is demanding a “ridiculously long list” of documents, including “a detailed description of all transactions related to all prior year returns and supporting documentation.
“It sounds like a fishing expedition by the IRS to tie me up for a very long time in retaliation for making a movie against Obamacare,” Mr. Clements says. “Perhaps they were hoping that voters wouldn’t see my movie before the election by keeping me tied up in a battle with the IRS. Well, in fact, their action is going to have the complete opposite effect.”
The conservative vowed to fight back by releasing “Sick and Sicker” immediately to entire states online
